I realize that I still owe day 30 of my 30 days of gratitude exercise.  And I know that the whole point was to find something to be grateful for in each day, even if I wasn't feeling it.  I'm just tired and cranky and don't want to force it.  I'll do day 30 before the end of the month, there may even be a few bonus days.

The show opened, and is being really well received.  Opening weekend there was also yelling, and trauma about socks, and an 18" hole in the scrim - none of which an audience notices but all of which I deal with.  Literally there's a place in my chest that feels heavier when I'm driving towards the theater which seems sub-optimal.  The show itself is fun to call and lovely, but all the rest of it remains.  Hopefully as we settle into the routine of a run the rest of these things will be resolved.

Also, I am dropping out of therealljidol.  I feel bad for doing it but have class and an understudy rehearsal today before the topic is due so no time and fewer ideas.  Given that the topic is 'bupkis' you'd think I have something right there but I just can't spin my brain that way today, and I've already used my byes.  Once this show hits stride and I can pull my head out I plan to home game some.  But idol is another casualty to this show. (I realized that in November I read no new books, and saw no movies in the theater or on netflix.  I didn't knit a stitch, and my last run was 11/15.  I suck at life/work balance.)

Alright I need to get to class and start my day for reals.  I hope December is being spectacularly awesome to all of you lovely people.

Oh noes! I am sad to see you dropping. Life being sacrificed for work is never fun.

December is being very awesome to me - this week has seen both a puppy and baby rats, both completely unexpected and out of the blue!

I think your December might be balancing mine out - which is good, someone should be having a wonderful time.

I had hoped I could tough it out until things got easier, but this week was the tipping point apparently. I'll be able to start reading again soon, and look forward to your entries.

I spoke too soon. I lost all the rats today due to the risks of disease from the wild baby Daddy. So I am focusing on the whole puppy factor, which is a big deal given that we've been dogless for way too long.

There are a lot of good newbies this year. I think you'll really enjoy it when you have time to read again.

I haven't been following much this year, but let me also add an "Oh Noes.:

Totally understandable though.

Aw, thank you.

I haven't been following much either this year, which is part of the reason I'm dropping out. I feel like half the game is reading and voting and I haven't done any of that in a month.

When this show closes I'm going to do a happy dance.

Please don't be too hard on yourself. The show must go on! Idol is fun and we will miss you but you have a very full plate and a lot to use up your energy. I will miss your entries but I hope you get around to say hey in the GR once in a while and just keep us posted on how you're doing. :}

Thanks so much for the well wishes. Something had to give and I'm bummed that it was Idol, but once my life settles back down a little I hope to be around the GR and to homegame.

Glad you were with us while you were, and see you in the home game! Happy opening night, too :)

Thanks so much! I've got three more weeks of show and then hopefully I can resurface to the rest of my life.
